Recently, there have been a rise in cyber-attacks which has been becoming the greatest concern of almost all of the influential organizations in the whole world. So you must be wondering what a cyber-attack is. This is an attempt in gaining control to the computer and tracking the movements of an individual or a group with not having a permission. This could be the newest form of weapon in fighting against another country. They would be choosing not to waste bullets and money since a country could be shut down in just a few minutes through aiming power grids or national banks or others and this is known as the cyber warfare.
For the sake of having fun, hackers before use this and would choose a single user computers to attack, however, they were starting to form groups and these are powerful ones so that they would be able to attack big shots. There was a report once by an organization about having a major breach on its computer system, also that it was being targeted by hackers whom they would like to believe to have been connected to another country. These hackers were stealing their email and other crucial documents.
Emails like Gmail was once attacked wherein the accounts of high state officials, journalists, military personnel and so many more were hacked, in case you do not know this. Tracing the attack was the only action taken. Hackers were said to be found from a province to which that they were also saying that they must not point fingers without a proper proof to present.
An email of was once sent by this one particular group of hackers which they have chosen not to attack but to rather say their servers in the network was simply reachable, this email was sent to the National Health Security in UK.
For that matter, keep in mind that the NHS has hundreds of computers put out there. This kind of organization will really have a huge job when it comes to the IT knowing that they have wings on the different countries around the world. Thinking about it, with just a system update, it will cost millions, so what more would it cost to update all of their systems. The software that most of the NHS is using is proprietary which means that they will have to develop their own software to be able to do their work.
So solving a problem like such will really take too much effort and time. Most of the companies would use the CMMS system in order to deal with maintenance regularly and also the updates happening in the company.
I hope this will help you in managing your company and to aware about what could happen in the internet.
